PARMA -- President Barack Obama is coming back to Greater Cleveland Thursday as part of his two-day bus tour visiting Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The President will campaign at 7:15 p.m. Thursday in James Day Park in Parma.

All the tickets for his Parma visit have been handed out but a third location in Ohio has been added.

After his first stop in Maumee at 11:15 a.m., President Obama will travel to Sandusky for a 3:40 p.m. ice cream social in Washington Park, at the corner of Washington and Columbus avneues in the historic district.

He will end the Ohio swing in Parma as planned.

This is the first bus tour of his re-election bid. It starts earlier Tuesday in Maumee, near Toledo, where he will speak at the Wolcott House Museum.

All three stops will stress American workers and manufacturing jobs with comments about the auto industry's comeback, a big "plus" for the President with so many auto-related jobs in Northern Ohio's factories.

The  President's route is expected to go from northern Ohio into western Pennsylvania.

He was last in Greater Cleveland about three weeks ago at Cuyahoga Community College's main downtown campus.

Most Presidential visits to Ohio have been closely followed by Mitt Romney events, though none has yet been announced for this stop.
